A great knit for tops and clingy dresses and slacks. Atouch of lycra makes this extra comfortable for apparel.

I was visiting my fiance in PA (I am from Canada and we do not have a Joann fabric back home, but how I wish that there were). I make wrestling masks for a living in which I usually use jumbo lycra spandex as it has a 4 way stretch and goes for $14.00/yard. I took a chance buying this when it was marked down at $3.99 a yard. Well, to my surprise, it is one of the nicest fabrics that I have ever worked with when making masks. Even though it is only a 2 way stretch, my masks fit perfectly like a glove. I am going to order more right now!!! Oh, and please look into opening some stores here in the Great White North!!! But in the meantime, I am grateful that you now ship to Canada!!! Thanks!!!
Maybe it's okay for a costume or athletic uniform but not for a slinky dress. It's not very soft and a little heavier than I'd hoped. It feels and looks like what you'd use to make a cheap 1970s leisure suit. Should have guessed since it's mostly polyester but I'd hoped the rayon would soften it up and it didn't.
Is this fabric similar to poleyster or double knit fabric? I need to make some dresses for my Mother who is in a convalescent home and need fabric that will withstand harsh treatment and many washings. Any recommendations will be helpful. Thanks.
This is the perfect fabric for a slinky dress. It is just delicate enough to cling, but just sturdy enough to be flattering. I used the red, and I think I'm going to make another one out of the black. With a coupon, it's very affordable. One of my favorite Joann purchases.
I purchased this product to use for a flightsuit for a costume and i could not be happier! It is very easy to sew and holds up against anything! Plus the stretch makes it more comfortable to wear for long hours.
I made a cheerleading outfit for my daughter and it was so easy to use! I have just a couple of suggestions though. One use good heavy scissors because it is kinda hard to cut double layers. Two, if you are using black, use a light thread and vice versa for white! The skirt looks like the expensive ones that the schools buy for their cheer squads!
